Speaking of coming out: David Hasselhoff's crying jag when Taylor was announced... David, during all those years of BAYWATCH, was it the Playmates you cast as lifeguards, or the real lifeguard, Newman -- the guy who looked like a stork chasing his dinner when he jumped into the waves -- that you wanted?

Meant to add -- What are the odds that in a couple of years, Taylor's career choices have boiled down to two options? (1) A nightly "Soul Patrol" musical revue at Bally's on the Strip, and (2) Doing SUV commercials for the new, fuel-efficient Kia Sorento....

Somewhere, a family mourns the death of their guinea pig. Small solace not that their beloved pet appeared on the AI finale, sprawled on top of Clay's head.

Taylor Hicks.. You are a talented guy and good luck to ya’. One question though. How did you manage to look older than Keith Richards when you are only 29? Keith has decades of self-abuse to blame. After 10 years of pop fame can we expect Taylor to resemble Andy Rooney?


Open auditions for AMERICAN IDOL 6 begin in just a couple of months. Start dying your hair grey and choking on escargot.And develop that Southern accent, too. Like NASCAR, it's a regional obsession gone national, although here it developed in the opposite direction.
